a Google Cloud created New world record in calculating Pi . numbersa The famous mathematical constant It is defined as the relationship between a circle’s circumference and its diameter. The achievement was announced by the Mountain View Company on Wednesday (8).
According to the search giant, Cloud computing system was able to calculate 100 trillion digits of Pisurpassing the previous record of 62.8 trillion decimal placesIt was recorded by Swiss researchers last year. This was the second time the company had ventured into this mission.
In 2019, Big Tech I calculated 31.4 trillion digits of the number Pi, the biggest mark I’ve reached so far. With the latest result, it was possible to triple the capacity of the computed decimal places in just three years, thanks to Compute Engine technology, which uses machines with a bandwidth of 100 Gbps.

Pi is classified as irrational numberThat is, it cannot be expressed as a ratio of two integers, so its decimal representation is never ending. Mathematicians have been trying to improve accuracy for thousands of years, and he says he’s got more than 37 trillion numbers in Google’s cloud computing business.
Great processing power
machine has been used n2-highmen with Intel Xeon 128 vCPUs and 864 GB RAM to 100 trillion numbers with any Google Cloud account. The device has 663 TB of storage, of which 515 TB were used during operation.
Big Tech reported that the activity began on October 14, 2021 and only ended on March 21 this year, lasting a total of 157 days, 23 hours, 31 minutes and 7,651 seconds. In the end, 82 petabytes of data were generated that were read and written by the device.
